Illustration Friday- Hibernate

So getting back into the swing of blogging after my conference palooza of the last two months, I thought I'd start with this post to Illustration Friday of Baby Sprout sleeping in her new big girl bed. I don't think she's gotten the hang of sleeping under the covers quite yet. But sleep in it she does, so Jim Dear and I bid a somewhat poignant farewell to our crib on Craig's List last week - watching the soon-to-be dad load it in his truck signaled the end of babies for us..... oh yeah and a couple of birthday's with the number 4 in them did that also. 

On a professional note, if you are curious to read my posts from the SCBWI Mid-south Conference you can here, here, here, and here. The intensive with Jim Hoover was really something. Jim was really funny, yet insightful with his comments on everyone's pieces, so our group spent the afternoon sitting around a hotel boardroom shooting the breeze about art. It's great when you sign up for a session with an art director and they turn out to be someone you'd just want to hang out with anyway.
